More overnight closures for Fort Bayou Bridge this week

Head’s up for Jackson County drivers, MDOT has announced more overnight closures for the Fort Bayou Drawbridge.

The bridge will be closed each night starting tonight and running through this Friday from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. It will remain open during the day.

The overnight closures will allow crews to work on the pilings underneath the bridge as well as its fender system.

If you typically use the bridge during those overnight hours, you’ll need to find an alternate route, but detour signs will be posted.
